Brentmoor Heath Barrows

Round Barrow(s)


Hard to distinguish, mainly overgrown with heather. Live badger set into largest barrow. More impressive when there than in photograph. Close to Chobam Ridge - sarcen occurs here naturally.
Wildife Trust sign says "Bronze Age Burial Mounds... 4,000 yrs of human history....these are bowl barrows.... unusual to find 4 together and this is the only example in Surrey...built at same time because traces of a ditch survive which surrounds the barrows. Not many burial mounds in Surrey have survived so well."
Recumbant Sarcen (rough size 5' x 4' x 18')
A spectacular place to visit!
